How to install Windows 11 without TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot

Here's how to get Windows 11 without a TPM 2.0-enabled CPU. Even if it's not officially supported, there is a workaround

Likely Those older Machines won't be able to install Windows 11 Officially but you don't have worry about that anymore because there are numerous other ways to install Windows 11 without TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot.

However, even if you don’t have a TPM 2.0 processor, don’t rush out to buy new hardware. There is a always a way to bypass it and the 4GB RAM and Secure Boot requirements, but it involves making changes to the registry. Yes it is safe and legit 100%.
